The Annual Report of the Governors and Trustees of The Liverpool Blue Coat Hospital for 1949

This 1949 Report was a momentous year for Blue Coat as immediate postwar lack of funds meant inevitable merging into the state system as a bilateral high school (ie grammar and secondary modern status) with day students as well as boarders, dropping its suffix of ‘Hospital’. Most significantly was the end of the girls’ school after 241 years as the school had to fit the single-sex model of English secondary schools and the 57 remaining girls were dispersed with 14 going to Royal Wolverhampton School, leaving just 132 boys in the school.
